 I have started on construction sites like many other students. I even managed to organize construction teams which were a little bonus to my organizational skills. But overall it was hard physical labor. I worked very hard, trying to earn all the money. Of course, this affected my health and gradually came the understanding that I won’t make so much money.

 

For this reason, I began to strive to earn money not with my hands but with my head I think this happened around the fifth year of the university. I consciously went to work where I could get practical experience. I got a job as an engineer at a factory. I worked at several enterprises for three years. Although since my adolescence I set a goal to work for myself, not for someone else. But for this goal it was necessary to understand how everything is arranged there, to “work” inside.

 

I was moving towards my dream little by little. I remember very vividly when I decided to open my company. I had about 10,000 hryvnias in cash (at that time about 1,000 dollars) and a Lanos car in credit. That’s all. And this was enough to build more or less serious business. So we can conclude that the amount of primary capital is not a determining factor for creating a successful business.

What is a determining factor? There are two main factors, first of all, you need to be obsessed and secondly love what you do. You must really love it.

My career at EDS has begun just after the university as a design engineer (specialty is “Mining Electromechanics”, mining electrical engineer) in 2011. The design department was then small. There were only two engineers, I came as a student without any experience.

 

An interview was held by Oleksandr Zapyshnyi and, due to the large load of work, I had to join the company immediately. Fortunately, colleagues helped and shared their experiences at first until I began to understand myself what’s what.

 

We recall that the country was in crisis in 2015. The company was declining and with it the design department. EDS has decided to try to develop its production of switchboard equipment contrary to unstable situation. Almost a gamble, however balanced. The niche was free, and I had a desire and ideas. They made an offer to me, and I agreed.

My first day was exactly eight years ago in EDS. And this just so happened was my birthday. A great thing to remember the date. The time of my coming just fell on the active phase of the development of the project team of the company. Then there was a significant portfolio of orders, and there was no time for buildup. I came to EDS as an ordinary structural engineer. And I became the head of a small group of designers of linear features about a year later. Most of the team was made up of yesterday’s students or young specialists like me at that time.

 

And the thing was that all the immaturity as specialists, incompetence in some issues, lack of experience, all this was fully compensated by perseverance and dedication. We have been studying, have been sharing experiences and together we have earned the right to exist.

 

We won the competition among designers of solar stations last year. It was a definite recognition of our work.

Dual training system

EDS group has been collaborating on an ongoing basis with a specialized institution of higher education, The National Technical University Dnipro Polytechnic , within the framework of the dual training system..

According to this students have the opportunity to receive practical knowledge in their specialty at the company's facilities twice a week starting from the second semester of the third year of the university.
